    Heat is one of the major enemies of my softball glove. No one likes the feeling of the shrinking leather of softball glove. It looses its loftiness from the texture of the leather and the oil like you rightly mentioned. As such best practise is to keep the glove in safe on a shelve after given it a gentle wipe.

      Hi, Parameter, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Yes, it is vital to Keep the Glove in Good Condition. Both the heat and wetness are not the gloves’ best friends.

      Because you mentioned the oil, I thought you would enjoy this article. It is about why and how you oil the gloves. You know a lot about the oil, but it could be some tips for you even so.

      Great to hear about your benefit of the article too.

      Don’t hesitate to contact me to help you with anything else or if you have any questions.

    This is a very helpful article even for people who use gloves in other sports. For example, we train in kickboxing and we also use gloves but they are different from softball gloves. What’s the same is that they are all wet inside after the training and we have a huge problem because we train every other day. I have tried newspapers as my mother told me, but since the internet era, we don’t even buy newspapers. Tried some marketing papers from the stores, but they leave stains of the colours they use. 
    So towels do the best or if you have the time it’s best to leave them dry naturally. Vaseline preserves leather very well too.
